weird how no-one in the past was bigoted or held antiquated views. hey were all either of their time or ahead of their time.

@diffractie It's really remarkable the rare time you see a history or biography that actually notes a person being especially bigoted *even for the time in which they lived.* One of the only examples I can think of is a thing I once read about HP Lovecraft, which stated plainly that he was incredibly racist even by the standards of the era.

@diffractie yeah, remember that time i put down Plato's dialogues, because Socrates compared the benefits of slaves receiving from their masters, to those that dogs receive from kennel holders, and never picked it up again
